|7th Grade Visits Washington, D.C.|
The cherry blossoms weren't the only things blooming in our nation's capital last week. Carmel's 7th grade class was too! From a meeting with Congressman Jim Himes on the floor of the House of Representatives to dinner with a lobbyist, our students are getting first-hand insights into the inner workings of our country's government.
|Carmel Commmorates Yom HaShoah|
In commemoration of Yom HaShoah (Holocaust Remembrance Day) Carmel's 5th and 6th graders were honored to participate in a Living Holocaust Museum on view at the JCC of Harrison. This non-intimidating collection included facsimiles of ordinary, everyday items, poignant visual representations of the numbers of each ethnicity killed, tattooed Torahs and other historical facts. The exhibit was facilitated by docents who guided the children throughout. One of the most moving parts of the day was meeting and learning the story of survivor Dr. Michael Kesler, the grandfather of Carmel 6th grader Daniel. Dr. Kesler shared his tale of survival by referring to his book "Shards of War: Fleeing To and From Uzbekizstan" which the children previewed in class.
